Our late-spring storm may have moved out, but the cold has not. Depending on where you live, you’re either headed for a potential frost or freeze Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. 

Temperatures will plummet to the 20s and 30s across southern Colorado overnight. This puts gardens and sensitive plants at risk once again. Unlike Monday night, we’ll see a greater threat for sprinkler lines and exposed pipes to freeze.

The coldest temperatures will be felt across the Pikes Peak region. El Paso County is under a Freeze Warning from 9 p.m. Tuesday to 9 a.m. Wednesday. Expect 20s over northern El Paso County and 30s to the south. 

The rest of southern Colorado will feel the cold too. Overnight lows dip to the low to mid 30s for the rest of the region, with Frost Advisories in place for the same time period. Sensitive plants are at risk, but sprinkler lines are not likely to freeze here.
